Seems edible, though it may not be totally sane to consume it.


Green Caps are Vegetable Food Items that can be harvested on Green Mushrooms or Green Mushtrees. A raw Green Cap will take away a hefty 50 Sanity Meter.png when eaten, while also restoring 12.5 Hunger Meter.png. It has no effect on health. Green Caps can also be used as Crock Pot filler with a 0.5 vegetable value.

A Cooked Green Cap is a Vegetable Food Item made by Cooking a Green Cap on a fire (Campfire, Fire Pit, Dwarf Star, etc.). Unlike its raw counterpart, the Cooked Green Cap will instead restore 15 Sanity Meter.png and take away 1 Health Meter.png when eaten, not affecting hunger at all.

Prototype.png Tips

  • Raw Green Caps can be eaten to decrease Sanity (to hunt Shadow Creatures or Beardlings, for example).
  • Having an equal positive effect to the Raw Blue Cap's negative, the Cooked Green Cap may be eaten in conjunction with a Raw Blue Cap for a resulting +19 Health Meter.png, +12.5 Hunger Meter.png, and 0 Sanity Meter.png.

  • Some real-life mushrooms, such as psilocybin mushrooms, have psycoactive properties and can cause visual and auditory hallucinations similar to those seen with low Sanity.
